Contact Us


SOUTH is a luxury quarterly business and leisure publication showcasing the 300km Garden Route, from Plettenberg Bay to Mossel Bay, and extending into the Little Karoo as far as Prince Albert, Uniondale and Oudtshoorn. Featuring diverse, credible editorial content, it’s an essential tool for local businesses, community leaders, regional visionaries as well as leisure tourists, investors and residents.


The publication aims to promote the Garden Route (and Southern Cape) as a favourable destination – for tourism, investment and living. Content is selected based on quality, craftsmanship and style. We aim to raise awareness about the Garden Route’s iconic environmental gems, award-winning accommodation/lodges, restaurants, design & lifestyle shops, galleries, vineyards and tourist attractions. And to represent business leaders, artists and local talent.

The title is a proudly local product that is committed to serving its community by telling people’s stories and sharing community-inspired projects.
